The Burnettes Take a Look Around Ontario

Published: 2005-02-25
Husband and wife team The Burnettes are half from Montreal and half from North Carolina, but now base themselves out of Vancouver. And early next week they'll be packing things up and heading off to Ontario for a CMW performance, and making use of their time in the eastern half of the country. The "Wooly Winter Tour 2005" begins next Sunday in Toronto for Wavelength, and then it's on to Montreal. After a stop-over in Ottawa, the band will head back to Toronto for their Canadian Music Week gig.

The Burnettes are playing their short tour in support of their newly released album "We'd Better Be Dreaming". Put out this month, it's the duo's second LP of "new-wave-country-kitchen-party-pop-rock", and the follow up to their 2002 debut "Album Schmalbum". They've been compared to both Ween and Willie Nelson, and are called the Buckingham/Nicks for the modern age - but hopefully things work out a bit better for The Burnettes relationship wise.

Four - count 'em, four - songs from "We'd Better Be Dreaming" are free to download at
